Flooded with lots of light thanks to its open west-facing aspect, and enjoying a fantastic view westwards over Clickimin Loch and the broch, 98 North Lochside is an three bedroom mid-terrace property in a very convenient central Lerwick location with amenities including the Clickimin leisure centre / swimming pool (just across the road), primary and secondary schooling, the hospital and Tesco's supermarket all within easy walking distance.
A lot of work has recently been carried out to the property included complete redecoration and new floor coverings throughout, plus the new kitchen. In addition to the three bedrooms, the 'move into' accommodation also includes a 19' dual-aspect living / dining room, attractive modern kitchen, a bathroom and handy laundry / utility room. The property benefits from fenced garden areas to the front and rear both with seating areas, the front seating area facing west and enjoying the view, the back garden including a large shed / summerhouse with power.
Early viewing recommended.
Access to the property is via the neatly kept front garden which is enclosed by a wall or sturdy wooden fencing with lawns either side of a path to steps to the front door, a concreated area to one side providing a great west-facing place to sit in the sun. The front door opens to a small hallway with coat hooks, a storage heating, carpeted stair lit by a window to the front of the house, to the first floor, and engineered oak flooring which extends into the living / dining room, a lovely bright space with triple windows to the front and rear, the window to the living area to the front of the house facing west and enjoying the view over to Clickimin Loch. The dining area looks out over the back garden. Heating is provided by a storage heater.
Off the dining area to the rear a wide archway leads to the attractively fitted kitchen, again with the same oak flooring, the kitchen featuring modern units in a cream finish set off by wood effect worktops, the units including an integral double oven, inset sink and plumbing for a dishwasher which is available by separate negotiation. Door and window to the back garden.
A door from the kitchen opens to the good-sized laundry / utility room with two windows to the front of the house and a fitted worktop with plumbing below for a washing machine and space for a fridge / freezer & tumble dryer, again the appliances being available by separate negotiation. A built-in under-stairs cupboard provides additional storage space. Slate tile effect vinyl flooring & storage heater with clothes pulley.
Back off the hallway the stair leads up to a carpeted landing with a handy built-in cupboard for linens / toiletries etc., and a storage heater. A hatch with pull-down ladder provides easy access to extensive floored storage space in the loft which has a fitted light.
There are three carpeted bedrooms, two doubles and a single, the principal bedroom and the single bedroom 3 enjoying the fantastic open view west. The free-standing wardrobe in the principal bedroom will be left. Both the single room and the second double room, bedroom 2 have built-in wardrobes, bedroom 2 which looks out over the back garden, also having a built-in cupboard housing the hot water tank. Finally the bathroom has an electric shower over the bath and a heated towel rail.

Thanks again for your brilliant service with both my property sales over the past years. Your experience in Shetland is much noted with local people.
Selling my house whilst living in Edinburgh was a daunting prospect but I should not have worried. The communications between both parties was easy and the sale of my property went through without any hitches.
